Your Purr-fect Horoscope…for April


As an aries, you are strong-willed, independent and assertive–a super-tough pussycat. You're often excitable–like a cat on a hot tin roof. And your most honorable feline trait? C-o-u-r-a-g-e.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Play It Smart. April is a month to be cautious, because this time the Ram can't play Super-Cat–it's too risky. Sorry. Forget leaping up on high surfaces or hunting for mice under ground, especially before the New Moon on April 12. Save your fearless feline antics for May when it'll be safer for you to do the risky business thing. Psst! Your nine lives may depend on it. Purr-fect days: 11, 12

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Toy With Cupid. Prep yourself lonely Bull Cats, because the love bug may bite this month. Read: Some stable human or animal touches your body and heart–a big lift for affectionate Taurus. By the time the Full Moon shines on April 26 you'll know if it's meant to be and worthy of some serious paw-kneading–or not. Purr-fect days: 13, 14

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
Curl Up. Too much novelty? You may feel skittish about unwelcome change–but don't worry. Be inquisitive (a snap for the fickle Gemini puss) and be open to new opportunities. Enjoy playing with new humans, but still take a realistic cat's point of view–stay at paw's distance until you can curl up and feel safe and welcome. Purr-fect days: 16, 17

CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
Open Your Eyes. Caution, oh sensitive one: Expect to weather relationship ups and downs (e.g., a wish-washy human, a bully pooch). Before you panic and flee–use your keen cat's eye and Moonkitty's patience. By the Full Moon on April 26, you may be purring in that same warm-hearted human's lap or next to that Paper Tiger canine. P.S. Don't act on impulse or you may find yourself in the doghouse. Purr-fect days: 18, 19

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Get Physical. Before and during the New Moon on April 12, you may be a furball of nerves. Blame kitty jitters on too much change which may cause hot-tempered Lions to lose their cool. It's time for you to get outdoors and be a wild cat on the prowl. If that's not going to work out, hit the cat toys or toy with the kitten, cat, dog or human–and enjoy that feel-good release for your body, mind and spirit. Purr-fect days: 19, 22

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Heads Up. For your safety's sake, play Guard Cat this month. That means down-to-earth felines look over your shoulder day and night. The reason: You may find yourself stranded in an strange place (a tall tree or dog park) that can shake up your normal cat balance and feline grace. During catnaps try to keep one eye open for good measure and you may help ward off kitty nightmares. Purr-fect days: 22, 23

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Be Vocal. Around the New Moon on April 12, it's time for you people-pleasers to chat it up (not a task for Libran cats). Yep, that means vocalize yourself (think Siamese) with you-know-who and stick up for your cat rights. Go ahead–be a talker and make your point. No more nice pussycat! Get your feline needs met despite the huge and loud noise you make. Repeat to yourself, "Meow." Purr-fect days: 24, 25

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Lighten Up. Venus (the emotional provoking planet), teaches possessive Scorpio cats how to compromise. In other words, dump that self-serving cat style of yours in the litter box. Instead, put your best paw forward. This, in turn, will reap good things long-term; and perhaps, fish treats short-term! But note, despite your good cat intentions, your life of being a spoiled puss will come and go. Purr-fect days: 26, 27

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Be Spontaneous. Good times and impromptu getaways occur this month, thanks to the New Moon on April 12. But note, my free-spirited feline friend, if you want to keep the peace with fun-loving human and pet pals, go along with the game plan or you may find yourself looking out the window and playing latchkey cat. Not fun, huh? Purr-fect days: 28, 29

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Team Up. The pairing of emotion-tweaking Venus and energizing Mars this month may put you in touch with an unique human or pet connection. If you don't send mixed signals and do keep the lines of cat communication open (forget sticking your finicky nose up at this opportunity, Cappie!) catnip-like feelings will brighten up your day-to-day existence. Purr-fect days: 3, 4

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Be Clingy. Kitty mishaps may strike early this month, especially if you're cat dreaming overtime. Meanwhile, stay close to home and nuzzle up to your human and animal companions. It'll make you feel like a calm puss. Most important, Aquarius, keep on your paws. And, don't be alone or you may find yourself in an uncomfortable "cat"-astrophic place. Purr-fect days: 6, 7

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Stretch Out. The Full Moon on April 26 (and perhaps earlier) make your cat dreams (of travel to a cat-friendly haven) come true! Just tune out the crate hassle (it's so claustrophobic) because once you arrive at your destination point you'll be purring inside and out. You'll catch up on sun, play and plenty of chin scratches this month. Purr-fect days: 4, 8
